i've only just noticed that my hardware mp3 player is truncating the text on the title of some mp3s. thinking this was a limitation of the player display i didn't think much of it. but then loading the files into windows media player 10 truncates the titles in the exact same way. so now i'm slightly miffed. what gives?



i usually use foobar and that displays the full info? where is the limitation coming from? btw i don't use wmp to sync files or anything like that - it's a drag/drop player using windows explorer. smile.gif

i'm not fussed about windows media player but i would like the full info displayed on my mp3 player if possible. (tis an archos xs202s)

30 bytes of ASCII for the title: It's ID3v1.

foobar2000 0.9.3.1 writes tags in ID3v2 2.4, encoded as UTF-8. WMP probably doesn't recognize it.

WMP supports ID3v2, it just doesn't support ID3v2.4.

foobar2000 is one of the few players that understands ID3v2.4. Some zealots call it a feature. wink.gif

foobar 0.9.4 can write to id3v2.3 by setting it up on the advance settings window.
